Happy Birthday Cakes!!! And we're home, we're home!!!

Happy Birthday Cakes!! We are so glad you are a part of our family, it just wouldn't be complete without your cute happy face.


Our trip went pretty well. We left around 7 am on thursday and got there in about 7 hours with stops. The kids did pretty good up until the last hour or so. Then they were done. Sushi was about done by then as well. We got to the hotel and checked in and went to visit Sushi's grandma. Then we went to dinner with his Aunt and Uncle and two of his cousins. After that we went back to the hotel and the pool then bed. The next day we had lunch with Sushi's family then visited with Sushi's grandma again and went to see Wall-E. Then we had a BBQ with my cousin and her kids and my Aunt. Saturday we went to Sushi's family reunion and visited again with his grandma and then went back to the hotel and played in the pool with Three of Sushi's cousins and one of sushi's cousin's daughters. It was really nice for the kids to meet some more of their family. Sunday we woke up late (we were going to go to church with my cousins but everyone was up way too late the night before playing in the pool) and went to visit with Sushi's grandma one more time and while we were there, Cakes started puking, we had planned on having lunch with my cousin and her family but our plans obviously changed. We had left Cakes' blanket at my cousin's house so we stopped by K-Mart and got a bucket, a couple of pairs of PJ's and some childrens tylenol (she was running a fever). Then we got her blanket and started driving home. Thankfully, no more throwups on the way home but a very sick little girl. We got home around 10:30 sunday night and put everyone into bed. I have had to take it easy the last few days because I am exhausted and my legs and ankles are crazy swollen. My ultrasound is tomorrow and I'll be letting you know how that goes tomorrow. Sushi took his camera and it wasn't pulled out too often but I will post what pictures we have when I get his camera. Well,that pretty much sums up our very exciting trip, we're glad to be home but it was fun to meet family I haven't met before and visit with Sushi's grandma, who knows how much longer she will be around. I'll let you know how tomorrow goes!

Oh my gosh, what a dollface! She looks so much like you, only with Sushi's hair color!

I hope your ankles and legs feel better.

Take it easy,

Sounds like quite the trip. My kids always decide to puke or get a weird disease when we are away from home. Hope Cakes has a great B-Day, and that you enjoy seeing your baby on the ultrasound!

Thanks everyone, she got a little plush puppy that has a little carrier and a new barbie movie and she is in heaven. I have been resting. It's a little frustrating to have to rest this much but my herniated bellybutton is really hurting me. I'm really hoping the doctor doesn't say the dreaded "bed rest" words tomorrow but I have a bad feeling.
